Annual InfectoOptics conference Life meets Light


Infections are dynamic and complex processes, which vary greatly depending on the respective microorganisms involved. Infection research therefore needs the appropriate technologies to elucidate the kinetics of an infectious process, to identify and characterise the players and their interactions as well as to develop means and devices for fast and precise diagnosis. Scientists from many different fields need to combine their expertises to develop such technologies.

The annual InfectoOptics conference Life meets Light aims to bring scientists from the different fields together in order to establish the essential connections between biologists, physicists and biotechnologists.
Life meets Light is a series of annual conferences of the Leibniz ScienceCampus InfectoOptics, which started in 2017. It takes place at the Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology in Jena, Germany. 

Researchers from all fields are invited to communicate their results at the interface between optics/photonics and infection biology in order to exchange novel scientific methods and to share recent achievements from optical research in infection biology.

You are cordially invited to submit your abstract for a poster or a talk. More information on this will be available soon here.

In 2018, the Life meets Light conference will precede the International Symposium Image-based Systems Biology, which will take place at the same location on September 5-6, 2018. You are cordially invited to take part in both events and you can submit your abstract and register here.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Jena on this occasion!
